Maintenance

Your vehicle’s maintenance can be as simple and straightforward as an oil service at your 3,000 mile mark, or it can include a larger service at milestones of 30k, 60k, 90k or 120k miles.

It’s understandable that maintenance and repairs on your car, truck, SUV or hybrid may be inconvenient, and yes, even spendy, but your vehicle is a means of getting you places. You rely heavily upon it…and may use it heavily.

Perhaps daily?
A few times daily?

It’s not always easy to remember that “use” creates “wear” on & in a vehicle’s systems.

These are a few of the services and parts involved in the wide world of maintenance:

30/60/90/120K service

Air filters

Belts

Brake flushes

Shocks

Cabin filter

Carbon cleaning

Cooling system flushes

What I appreciate most about Tom's Auto in West Seattle is their level of customer service. Compared to a dealership shop, their personal attention to details like explaining the list of items your car needs in order of priority helps to break it down and not be overwhelmed. Yes, car repairs can add up, but their approach makes it palatable. It puts us in the position to prioritize what to take care of first. They are experts in auto repairs and customer service!

EXCELLENT service. I went in for burned out tail lights. They took me without an appointment; got me in and out in 20 minutes and chargedme less than $25. Definitely going back

This place has been so friendly and helpful. Twice I've brought my car by and they've look at it without charging to troubleshoot an issue for me. I've been looking for a new mechanic in the West Seattle area and plan to use this place whenever I need something.
